About Us

The purpose of the Manatee River Garden Club, a non-profit corporation, is to promote and encourage a community of nature enthusiasts who share the love of gardening, horticulture, floral design, environmental concerns and other related endeavors.  We strive to further the education of our members through our monthly meetings that feature excellent programs and speakers.  We offer a luncheon, along with the opportunity to learn, laugh and enjoy the fellowship of fellow gardeners.  Anyone who has ever planted a seed and watched it grow knows that a garden is heavenly. 
The Manatee River Garden Club is a place to share your love of gardening and flowers.  Come and join and make new friends by sharing, learning, growing and giving.

We are members of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., The National Garden Club, The Deep South and are part of the Florida State District VIII. We have many Outreach Programs - placing a wreath at the Blue Star Memorial Marker, beautification programs that we help finance through the Eaton Fund, the wonderful Flower Shows we present for the public, our Garden Therapy Program where we do craft projects with senior citizens at Daybreak Adult Day Care.  We help clean up Lewis Park each year and we "Plant it Pink" by planting our front flower beds with pink annuals during October to observe the American Cancer Society's awareness program.  In 2013 we started a junior gardener program at the Boys and Girls Club in Palmetto.  We meet with the children, share a nutritious snack and discuss plant life cycles and how important fruits and vegetables are in their diets.  We donate regularly to the local food bank and have participated in the Habitat for Humanity Women's build project.  

We welcome new members - please use our "contact us" page and we will be happy to supply you with information regarding our club.  If you know you want to join the club, please use the application form you can download on the bottom of the "contact us" page.  After you complete it, you can send it,  along with a check for your dues to the address listed on the form.
